Gammarays from the quasar PKS 1441+25: story of an escape
(20151220)Outbursts from gammaray quasars provide insights on the relativistic jets of active galactic nuclei and constraints on the diffuse radiation fields that fill the universe. The detection of significant emission above 100 ... 
GASP  Galway Astronomical Stokes Polarimeter
(2009)The Galway Astronomical Stokes Polarimeter (GASP) is an ultrahighspeed, full Stokes, astronomical imaging polarimeter based upon a Division of Amplitude Polarimeter. It has been developed to resolve extremely rapid ... 
A gene regulatory network underlying the formation of preplacodal ectoderm in Xenopus laevis
(BioMed Central, 20180616)Background: The neural plate border ectoderm gives rise to key developmental structures during embryogenesis, including the neural crest and the preplacodal ectoderm. Many sensory organs and ganglia of vertebrates develop ... 
Generalised Moonshine and Abelian Orbifold Constructions
(1994)We consider the application of Abelian orbifold constructions in Meromorphic Conformal Field Theory (MCFT) towards an understanding of various aspects of Monstrous Moonshine and Generalised Moonshine. We review some of the ... 
Generalization of the Zabolotskaya equation to all incompressible isotropic elastic solids
(The Royal Society, 20190703)We study elastic shear waves of small but finite amplitude, composed of an antiplane shear motion and a general inplane motion. We use a multiple scales expansion to derive an asymptotic system of coupled nonlinear ... 
Generalized Moonshine and orbifold constructions.
(Research Institute for Mathematical Sciences (Kokyuroku), 2002)A brief review is given of some of our recent work on Generalised Monstrous Moonshine using abelian orbifoldings of the Moonshine Module. 
A Generalized Vertex Operator Algebra for Heisenberg Intertwiners
(2011)We consider the extension of the Heisenberg vertex operator algebra by all its irreducible modules. We give an elementary construction for the intertwining vertex operators and show that they satisfy a complex parametrized ... 
Generation of a panel of high affinity antibodies and development of a biosensorbased immunoassay for the detection of okadaic acid in shellfish
(Elsevier, 20150710)Okadaic acid (OA) and its derivatives, DTX1 and DTX2, are marine biotoxins associated with diarrhetic shellfish poisoning. Routine monitoring of these toxins relies on the mouse bioassay. However, due to the technical ... 
Generation of rationallydesigned nerve growth factor (NGF) variants with receptor specificity
(Elsevier, 20171103)Nerve growth factor (NGF) is the prototypic member of the neurotrophin family and binds two receptors, TrkA and the 75 kDa neurotrophin receptor (p75NTR), through which diverse and sometimes opposing effects are mediated. ... 
Genes influenced by MEF2C contribute to neurodevelopmental disease via gene expression changes that affect multiple types of cortical excitatory neurons
(Oxford University Press (OUP), 20200925)Myocyte enhancer factor 2 C (MEF2C) is an important transcription factor during neurodevelopment. Mutation or deletion of MEF2C causes intellectual disability (ID) and common variants within MEF2C are associated with ... 
Genes regulated by BCL11B during T‐cell development are enriched for de novo mutations found in schizophrenia patients
(Wiley, 20200729)While abnormal neurodevelopment contributes to schizophrenia (SCZ) risk, there is also evidence to support a role for immune dysfunction in SCZ.BCL11B, associated with SCZ in genomewide association study (GWAS), is a ... 
Gent models for the inflation of spherical balloons
(Elsevier, 2015)We revisit an iconic deformation of nonlinear elasticity: the inflation of a rubber spherical thin shell. We use the 3parameter Mooney and GentGent (GG) phenomenological models to explain the stretchstrain curve of a ... 
Genus Two Meromorphic Conformal Field Theory
(1999)We construct the genus two (or two loop) partition function for meromorphic bosonic conformal field theories. We use a sewing procedure involving two genus one tori by exploiting an explicit relationship between the genus ... 
Genus Two Partition and Correlation Functions for Fermionic Vertex Operator Superalgebras I
(2010)We define the partition and $n$point correlation functions for a vertex operator superalgebra on a genus two Riemann surface formed by sewing two tori together. For the free fermion vertex operator superalgebra we obtain ... 
Genus two partition and correlation functions for fermionic vertex operator superalgebras II
(20181018)We define and compute the continuous orbifold partition function and a generating function for all npoint correlation functions for the rank two free fermion vertex operator superalgebra on a genus two Riemann surface ... 
The Genus Two Partition Function for Free Bosonic and Lattice Vertex Operator Algebras
(2007)We define the $n$point function for a vertex operator algebra on a genus two Riemann surface in two separate sewing schemes where either two tori are sewn together or a handle is sewn to one torus. We explicitly obtain ... 
Genus two virasoro correlation functions for vertex operator algebras
(20161206)We consider all genus two correlation functions for the Virasoro vacuum descendants of a vertex operator algebra. These are described in terms of explicit generating functions that can be combinatorially expressed in terms ... 
Genus two zhu theory for vertex operator algebras
(20161027)We consider correlation functions for a vertex operator algebra on a genus two Riemann surface formed by sewing two tori together. We describe a generalisation of genus one Zhu recursion where we express an arbitrary genus ... 
Geographical location influences the composition of the gut microbiota in wild house mice (Mus musculus domesticus) at a fine spatial scale
(Public Library of Science, 20190926)The composition of the mammalian gut microbiota can be influenced by a multitude of environmental variables such as diet and infections. Studies investigating the effect of these variables on gut microbiota composition ... 
Geothermal structural geology in New Zealand: Innovative characterisation and microanalytical techniques
(International Geothermal Association, 20161123)Many of New Zealand's geothermal reservoirs are hosted in rocks with low intrinsic permeability. As such, successful development of these resources relies on understanding the role subsurface structures, such as fractures ...
